0.2

Australia 1/0   SR Watson 1* (3b)
1.1

Abdur Rehman to Watson, FOUR, top strike! Only three on the leg-side, so Watson flicks gloriously, and no-one can stop the boundary through midwicket

1.2

Abdur Rehman to Watson, no run, Review! Watson was eyeing up those acres on the leg-side again. Playing all around his front pad, and Pakistan ask for a second opinion. Very full length, but probably missing leg. No idea why these reviews are taking so long at the moment. Just get us the pitch map. Sure enough, it's an umpire's call

1.3

Abdur Rehman to Watson, 1 leg bye, speared down the leg side, and flicks the pad

Australia 6/0   SR Watson 5* (6b 1x4)
2.1

Umar Gul to Watson, no run, no signs of discomfort there as Gul hits his length outside off, and Watson drives loosely

2.2

Umar Gul to Watson, 1 run, sliding into the pads, and flicked round the corner

Australia 7/0   SR Watson 6* (8b 1x4)
3.2

Abdur Rehman to Watson, no run, short, but skids through, defended from the crease

3.3

Abdur Rehman to Watson, no run, fuller length, met with a big stride

3.4

Abdur Rehman to Watson, no run, a compact drive to mid-off

3.5

Abdur Rehman to Watson, no run, probing work from Rehman, Watson is finding the middle well enough, but no width to work with

3.6

Abdur Rehman to Watson, 1 run, on the pads to finish, a grateful flick to midwicket

Australia 10/0   SR Watson 7* (13b 1x4)
4.1

Umar Gul to Watson, 2 runs, banged in short, a swivel pull through midwicket

4.2

Umar Gul to Watson, no run, full length and defended to cover

4.3

Umar Gul to Watson, OUT, that's the nut! Bang on target, nip off the seam, a loose drive and a touch of inside edge, and the stumps are shattered!

SR Watson b Umar Gul 9 (24m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Australia 12/1   SR Watson 9 (16b 1x4)
